The Penalty of Marriage Although Lucy Marsden had been reluctant to leave Exeter, Great Malvern had its compensations. The 36-year-old was pregnant with her seventh child, and as the town was within a few miles of Cheltenham she was able to call on the support of her mother and sisters, as well as her mother-in-law, Harriet Marsden.

5 Lucy was buried in the churchyard of the Priory Church. Her heartbroken brother John Rashdall noted in his diary that Dr Gully and various other medical men attended the funeral. The emotional impact on the six young Marsdens must have been enormous. Their sense of security had been badly shaken during the long and painful separation from their mother beginning in 1844, and now they had lost her forever. The older girls, Lucy and Emily, became loving ‘little mothers’, especially to the baby of the family, Alice, who was yet to celebrate her second birthday.
